Comfort, location and charm!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I grew up in Brookline but moved away 17 years ago. This was our first time being back for Thanksgiving with our 3 kids. We stayed for a week and kept congratulating ourselves on our choice of accommodations. The house is charming and cozy, very well stocked and has comfortable bedrooms. The heat and hot water worked great despite the cold weather. The kitchen was more spacious than the photos suggest and very easy to cook in. It was nice to have a living room and family room. My three year old was delighted to find a little playroom in the basement and my teenage son enjoyed the basketball hoop in the back. My tween daughter liked the Tiffany blue bedroom and bunk bed. It was just great to have enough room for everyone in a really convenient location. It’s a very short drive to the Chestnut Hill T or to Brookline/Boston/Cambridge. We truly had a wonderful and memorable week and The Yellow House played a starring role. We would definitely want to stay again when we visit Boston.

Charming home with warm, comfortable accommodations in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The house provides the historic charm and beauty with all of the conveniences of home and more. Donna even had birthday candles available so we could celebrate a family members big day during our stay! We really enjoyed being away from the busy streets of Boston in a quiet, tree lined community. All of the major Boston attractions are within a 30 minute drive but the traffic is awful so consider public transportation. I would certainly recommend Donna's place, especially for families and couples who want to enjoy some fresh air in a quiet setting. Some stores and restaurants are within a mile of this West Roxbury house but you have access to pretty much everything Boston has to offer without the outrageous corporate hotel rates.

Great Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our guys trip to watch sports and see Boston. The house met all our needs, was clean and set up nicely in a beautiful area. Fenway Park and Downtown were a close Uber ride. Thanks for the accommodations and I would definitely stay there again if we choose that area for future trips.

Car: recommended

The best of both worlds - close proximity to all Boston has to offer without the noise and parking hassles of downtown. We're located on a quiet, tree-lined street with plenty of free parking. BC, Fenway Park, Boston Children's Hospital and other hospitals in the Boston Medical Area are all within 5 miles of the house. Easy access to public transportation (both the subway and the commuter rail), Routes 9, 128 and the Mass Pike, enables you to easily explore all the great sights in the city as well as in the surrounding area.
